    I actually just got lawnpro software. It was about 100 bucks. I like it so far. they have a good way of keeping track of that info. It works for me. they also have letter writer ability and alot of other things I have yet to figure out. it seems pretty good for me and my solo operation.

    I've never heard of Lawnpro, do you have a link?
    I use a calendar in Excel that I print off with my accounts for each day of the week, then I cross them off as I complete them, works well for me, All my accounts are Monthly Flat Rates.

    i believe the link is lawnprosoftware.com the only thing that sucks is there is no free trial period.

    Does it sink with Quickbooks for invoicing?

    i have a dry erase board set up similar to matt's system ... n i keep a sheet for each daily route in a binder in the truck ... weeks end i input all the route sheet info onto a master copy for each client which also includes payment(s) and check number info and the daily rioute sheets are placed into a monthly folder n stored at the office

    the reason why i save route sheets is because if a client ever wonders if we were there or is disputing that we were'nt there ... i simply send them a copy of the route sheet which has the start time written for each in addition to any notes of the day

    since i dont keep any pricing info on the route sheets i can send it out to anyone and dont have to worry about exposing the pricing structure as i often have two neighbors paying different prices because they are on seperate programs

    Right now I am using the Demo of Groundskeeper pro. I like how its set up. It seems pretty user friendly. My clients already like the invoice. I don't mind too much that the invoice says demo on it. I'll just tell my clients that I am trying out the software currently to see if I want to purchase it. I am about to download the gopher software and try that aswell. So far so good with Groundskeeper pro.

    Here's a PDF of mine. The little tiny squares represent the front and back yards, and I draw a line through them to indicate which direction I cut that week, so that I cycle through all 4 mowing angles in order...
